ART: South Grove hosts a Masterpiece!

Written on: Wednesday 01 May 2019

As part of the London Borough of Culture South Grove Primary is involved in the ‘Ways of Seeing’ Project by hosting a painting by James Fitton.

Here’s how the artwork and the project is described on the Waltham Forest Website:

Noise, smells and chatter. There is a lot happening in James Fitton’s painting of a street market. In the middle is a fishmonger’s stall with silver sardines, yellow kippers and black shellfish. Wearing an apron and rubber gloves, the fishmonger holds a large knife. The woman in the blue hat is watching him carefully. What might she be about to say?

Ways of Seeing - 68 artworks, 33 artists, 28 locations

In partnership with the Government Art Collection, Waltham Forest London Borough of Culture 2019 presents Ways of Seeing. Transforming the whole borough of Waltham Forest into an art gallery, Ways of Seeing will display the work of 33 internationally-known artists from the Government Art Collection in 28 unusual and unexpected venues across Chingford, Leyton, Leytonstone and Walthamstow from 24 April – 31 August.

An impressive total of 68 artworks by 33 artists have been selected from the Government Art Collection relating to ideas around production, landscape and nature connecting with the Borough’s rich history of creativity and its enviable mix of urban spaces, waterways and forest. Each work is in a specially selected location that responds to the piece, offering new ways to think about it and the borough.
